I have a frizz problem, nothing will work on my hair what so ever. Well not all of my hair just mainly the top layer is being a pain. Idk if its because I'm constantly putting moisture into my hair or if its bc it's dry. My hair, I think is 2c/3a and is long. If anyone has any ideas or can help me in any way??
Frizz can be caused by many different things. A few things I've learned here:
1. It's important to use the right products for your hair type. Knowing that you're a 2c/3a is a description of your curl pattern. Your hair type includes porosity and density or texture. These links can help you:

2. Frizz can be caused by not having enough moisture in your hair. Your hair may feel dry and brittle. It can also be caused by over-conditioning. Your hair may feel mushy.
3. My hair is fine and prone to build-up. Even products that don't build up on others will find a way to build up on my hair. I need to low-poo regularly and avoid the temptation to try every product I read about on these boards - especially all at once!
4. Touching/manipulating my hair while it's drying will always bring on frizz for me. I need to apply my products to wet hair then sit on my hands until my hair is completely dry.
There are other things that come into play but these are the top ones for me. It takes time, trial and error to hit on the right products and styling techniques that will work best for your individual hair. Hang in there!
That certain part feels dry, idont think its damaged bc I don't really do much to my hair. I have never colored it, straighten it maybe once a month and have gotten a keratin treatment in the past. I usually use a leave in after showering then top it with a mousse. Also I have noticed my hair doesn't hold for an entire day. Maybe I'm not using the right products, hmm... But I'll definitely look into that. Thank you for the advice and hopefully this problem goes away :(
You don't list the specific products you're using, so it's hard to respond. Your frizz could be caused by over conditioning if your "constantly" putting moisture into your hair. Protein will counteract that.
My stylist says that mousse can be very drying. Not just the ingredients, but the propellant, too.
Use the links mhen provided for you. Hair properties are what matters for ingredients/products that your hair should prefer. Once you determine your hair properties look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.
My hair is fine/low porosity. I use really rich products and don't need to DT. My hair loves protein. I do one moisturizing PT a week and use a lot of protein in my products. Protein really helps me with frizz.
